Thought i’d offer some new local nerd news this morning. Coming September 21st, 2013 @ University of Houston, Clear Lake location, the universities art department is hosting the first ever comic symposium. Exhibits are running through October 18th, but the main event will be next Saturday from 10 AM till 4 PM. But this isn’t your normal comic-con, where focus is given to characters and stories; at this convention, the focus will be geared towards aspiring artists and the trade they love. Some of the more notable panels include: comic narration, illustration, and a rare opportunity to have YOUR portfolio reviewed by seasoned comic industry veterans. What more could you ask for, right? Oh, and its absolutely, 100% free!!!
Curious on who the panelists are? University of Houston comiCulture will feature: Leroy Brown (Ice Cubes), David Doub (Dusk Comics), Charles Martin (Literati Press), Mark Nasso (Land of the Rats), James O’Barr (The Crow), Terry Parr (Shonuff Studio), Bruce Small (Transyltown), Maurice Terry Jr. (Bad Cog), Terry Wagner (Mental Diversions Studio), and Gary Watson (After Twilight), to name a few. comiCulture is proudly sponsored by local comic book shop Bedrock City Comics and lavish Candlewood Suites. You can reserve your seat at the panels and check for more information @ http://www.comiculture.org
The UHCL Art Gallery and the Garden Room are on the first floor of the Bayou Building.
